1. We discussed moving Committee lunches to the JCR to increase openness, and we're going to trial this next week.

2. We passed £50 to top up the Womens' Officer budget, with that budget having been spent into heavily printing out consent workshop materials.

3. Jowett will be getting it's own tampon moutnain in the laundry room.

4. There was a general notice for people to approach sexist comments in a useful and productive way, noting that there's a lot of new people encountering a lot of new ideas.

1. We passed £20 to be used by the STEM sisters Committee for activities (such as STEM sister teas and cinema visits and whatnot).

2. We passed up to £50 to get new table tennis bats (on the understanding that this is a significant overestimate of the cost).

3. We decided to start keeping the PS4 in the JCR Office as a result of the safe being broken - a key for the JCR Office can be gotten from the lodge or from one of the key-holding JCR officers (I'm almost always happy to help) - and we'll bring buying a more robust safe up at the next GM.

1. Darryl was reimbursed £11 for batteries he bought for the TV remotes.

2. Library Committee has decided that more diverse art will be being displayed in the Library (this is to be decided in the future), and also that we can now drink coffee in keep-cups in the library; we might be buying some Balliol keep-cups, watch this space.

3. We passed up to £25 for a clock that will be decoration at the bop; this clock may be going up permanently, but we'll likely discuss this at a GM in the future.

In total passed up to £165.

3. Up to £50 was passed to purchase board games.

4. Daisy Cutts volunteered to organise the end-of-term campaigns for BHS and the Community Emergency Foodbank.

5. We passed up to £25 for a gift and a birthday card for Denise.

1. Annie reminded the Committee to attend the termly lunch that we enjoy courtesy of the Dean where we'll get to meet the new Junior Dean and Jowett Wardens.

2. The Committee interpreted the amendment to Duncan's last motion mandating EM to sign the open letter with regards to whether it mandated the Ethnic Minorities Office to sign (in which case the signature from one officer was sufficient) or whether it mandated each officer; the Committee interpreted the amendment as applying to the Office, so that one signature was sufficient.

1. We discussed possible suggestions for what to do with a compulsory levy for sponsoring a child which has became moot since the child has since graduated; there's currently money collected from previous terms after the child graduated, and the school asked for a donation towards classroom equipment, however it is felt that this is against the spirit of how Balliol donates charitably and the levy, so this will probably be coming to a GM at some point.

3. Up to £15 was passed to reimburse Xav buying us table tennis balls which please for the love of life can you just not lose

4. Molly reminded us that there's a JCR boycott of Nestle and this should be considered in JCR teas and whatnot.

1. We're going to show Eurovision in the JCR; they'll be face painting and food and drinks.

2. Richard suggested buying drug purity testing kits for the JCR to use as a harm-reduction scheme; it was agreed this would be discussed further with Bruce and with James & Meg.

3. We're gonna start stocking spare food from JCR teas in a box behind Pantry to reduce waste because we're a responsible JCR.

4. The Committee formally noted the good job done by the Garden Party; we're gonna get them a card and passed up to five quid for this.

1. Abi asked the Committee for volunteers to do staircase checks on the day of the Garden Party
